Paper.—The Hon. Secretary, Professor Parker, then read a paper: “Notes on a Specimen of the Scaled Tunny (Lepidothynnus huttoni).”
The paper was illustrated by a well-stuffed specimen of this very rare fish, which was caught just at the Otago Heads. Particular attention was drawn to the great difference in size between the heart of the common tunny and that of this species. Preparations were shown of the scales and of some of the internal organs.*
[Footnote] * Another specimen has since been captured in Blueskin Bay.
